6. Elvish Wonderland

Sung by Ingwë, Finwë and Elwë upon reaching Valinor, to the tune of 'Winter Wonderland'

The Two Trees, see them shimm’rin?
All around, Aman’s glimm’rin
A beautiful sight
And we bask in their light
Walkin' in an Elvish wonderland!

Gone away is the twilight
Here to stay is the Tree’s light
We burst into song
As we go along
Walkin' in an Elvish wonderland!

On great Túna we will build a tower
Whose silver lamp will shine far out to sea
And in fellowship we all will
Dwell there
Except the Lindar who prefer the sea

Later on we'll desire
Many jewels to acquire
About they’ll be strewn
As we strike up a tune
Walkin' in an Elvish wonderland!

On great Túna we will build a tower
And in the court we’ll place Gal’thilion
All of Tirion we’ll deck with flowers
And craft ourselves a grand pavilion!

Valinor, ain't it thrillin'
With the Ainur a-chillin'?
We'll frolic and play
And not go astray
Walkin' in an Elvish wonderland!
Walkin' in an Elvish wonderland!

Here's a place for members to post one or two of the pieces they are most proud of.
Included because: All of my more promising poems are lying around unfinished at the moment, so I thought I'd include my first collection of carols instead. I'm proudest of "'Twas the Night Before Yuletide", but "Let It Blow!" is the most fun!
